I am just looking to extend the fps and life of my computer for a year or two until the current gen of RTX cards has been passed.
Saw this 1080ti mini for an acceptable price.
What I can gather about it, it has full 1080ti capability in a small frame. Downsides are cooling is not as good as good as full size card, so long load times may cause overclock throttling due to temp.
I am running an old but faithful amd 7990 card which runs all my games fine in 1080p but dcs is starting to struggle now. A 1080ti will mean my cpu will definitely bottle neck on an older and slower i7
My aim is to probably upgrade the monitor to 1440p next year, no interest in VR and Ray tracing at the moment and looking to have playable frame rates with high to excellent visuals.
So is the card listed above (which has decent reviews, despite its flaws) going to be in the realms of what I am looking for or should I, for an extra price of about £150+ go for a full size 1080ti like this.?
